Existence Is Important

Why must all of the minutiae be so ever present and ever perplexing? Like some analogous time bomb of affluence and delusion. Tends to be that way most days and nights.

It's no big deal. Right? I suppose not. But I've never been the type to suppose much. Especially, during the 21st century of human existence.

As I watch time fly by me and the stars change their position, I am brought back to a much simpler state of mind. The state in which I thrived during my childhood. Things seemed better, felt better. And whatever I didn't understand I just allowed it to fester and die out of its own volition.

Many other things would occupy my mind. Things that were much more positive and magical to a kid like me. So what if no one else saw what I saw or felt what I felt!

Being small has a tremendous impact on one's perspective. It makes the entire world look bigger, grander and very important. And indeed it is! It always has been!

As children we live with a profound sense of wonder and unparalleled amusement. We then have to suffer greatly as those qualities are gradually, but quickly, torn away from us upon reaching adulthood. And so we then spend the rest of our lives deluding ourselves into believing that we're okay with it all! Okay with working demeaning jobs for very low pay. Okay with having most of that pay go to Uncle Sam. Okay with paying taxes. Okay with being promised that tax money will go towards revitalizing the community but rarely seeing such a promise manifest.

Okay with being dependent on oil. Okay with starting wars to acquire more oil. Okay with producing more iphones, ipods, ipads than we know what to do with. Okay with allowing Chinese factory workers to assemble these devices for extremely low pay, lower than what we consider low, and hurling themselves off the factory roof when the poor working conditions become too much to bear.

Okay with allowing people to become homeless. Okay with allowing people to go hungry and die from starvation. Say what you want to about adults but there is absolutely NO reason ANY child should ever be allowed to go hungry or starve to death!

Now, what I've written thus far is really just the tip of the iceberg. There's still plenty more to ponder, consider, analyze and re-analyze. As human beings we ignore too many pressing issues. As conscious beings we deny our own consciousness. As sentient beings we deny the imbalance that plagues us. Worst of all, we deny the ever-flowing love and compassion within each and every one of us!

How much longer will we allow this to continue? It CANNOT be allowed to continue or else we will all be subjecting ourselves to our own extinction. Ultimately, only WE have the power to turn things around.

Even if we don't, it is likely that the Universe will somehow reset and realign mankind's trajectory. For you see.... we are important. The world is important. The Universe is important.

Existence is important.

Perfection You Hold

Do not try to achieve external perfection. You could drive yourself mad attempting such a feat. Instead, awaken to the perfection you hold within. Only then will you be at peace with yourself and the Universe.

Picasso Dream

Had totally awesome dream in which I met and conversed with Pablo Picasso! The older version of Picasso. I don't know how it occurred but all of a sudden he just showed up in a black car with a chauffeur. He asked me to join him so I did and we went to some market where he purchased six sausage and salami logs. He spoke mostly Spanish so I only understood half of what he said. He had me carry the logs while he spoke and looked through one of my sketchbooks. He was silent for a while then laughed and smiled as he flipped through each page. Then we came upon his estate which was a large beige/white stucco looking mansion. We climbed a staircase to the main entrance and I watched him slowly walk inside. I handed him the logs and he smiled then said, "Oh. It was your Uncle. Your Uncle thought I should meet with you." And with that he disappeared into the mansion.
I tried to follow him in but when I got inside there was no sign of him. I saw a nude model sitting on a large sofa in the living room area. She looked like she was waiting for someone. I saw a dog running around and a boy chasing him around the entire first floor. I then went up to the second floor and peered into one of the rooms, a couple was fast asleep on a comfy bed. I didn't know how to get out from there so that's when I woke up.

Love and Be Loved

Too many of us are afraid to love and be loved. Now is the time to do away with all preconceived notions and expectations and just love. Love whomever/whatever you want to Love.

Everyone Is Beautiful

Everyone is
Beautiful
The God
Within Us
Is within
All Creation
All physicality
Everyone is
Beautiful
Everyone is worthy
Of Abundance
We mustn't over-think
Or analyze too much
Everyone is
Beautiful!
Beautiful!

Orange

Sketch of a female.


Kill Your Television

An illusion is an illusory thing. Division running rampant, or so we think. People often seem surly and agitated whilst traversing the depths of their own subcranial subconscious. This is no allegory or feeble fable like all the rest.

We think because we must think and never stop thinking. Such a feat is impossible or maybe more like improbable. That's what I would say if I were surrounded by shallowness and drunken fools. Gotta' pass the time somehow. Mustn't feel obligated to entertain entities I have nothing much in common with.

Maybe if I were a sailor or militia man of sorts it would be slightly easier to relate to the chasm of most human miseries. Only slightly; slightly. Still... I would find it difficult nonetheless. It's all a blind two legged race. A race that no one could ever even hope to win. Yet, we all try anyway.

Do you ever day dream of visionary goals? I don't mean stuff like acquiring vast sums of money or getting an all over tan. No, I mean stuff like being able to fly high up in the sky like Superman! Also gaining the ability to manifest just about anything and everything you can think of. Within reason, or not within reason.

To each his own. Ha. That's one of those laughably engaging phrases that gets tossed around so much so people don't even remember its origins. But I suppose we do live in a time when nobody really gives a rat's ass about the origins of anything. It's both a good and bad philosophy to live by.

Let truth be truth and lies be lies. That's what I like to say... not out loud. Though, perhaps I should start saying it out loud. Yeah, that's all I need. To be gawked at by the rest of the insincere and insecure populace.

I read what I can and speak when I want. No one has a say in that. We're all entitled to our own opinions but none of us is entitled to force our opinions onto each other. It's a fact! Such and such is the way we must observe life's effervescence.

Illusions envelope us daily and nightly. It is to be expected to freak out every now and then. The real key is to let it all wash over you like some kind of cosmic waterfall. Then once you've allowed it to drench you and beat you down there can be nothing but sunshine to look forward to. This I know to be the utmost truth.

Look, man. Listen, man. Taste these words or be prepared to forever chase them in your dreams. If you really desire lots of gold and material pleasures then go ahead and go out there and get them. Just don't be disappointed when they don't last as long as you were hoping they would last. That's all I gotta say about... that.

Hey, man! Do you like movies or read books? I suggest you read more books, man. I mean... just in case my words bore you and don't send your mind soaring into the stratosphere. Read books. Read more books. Kill your television!
